You are searching for an effective and modern latex foam production process for pillows, mattresses and
toppers with the latest state-of-the-art equipment? Old fashioned systems bothering your mind and you prefer
to use a new manufacturing process to develop new products for your customers with additional ergonomic
features and benefits ?
I offer you a wide range of consultancy and support in this special industry.
Let me tell you my story:
Welcome on LATEXFOAM TECHNOLOGY!
1986 I jumped into the bedding industry when Japanese futons become popular in Germany. I started a small
production of these new “mattresses” and grow continuously during the next years. Soon a lot of people
asked for more comfort in this simple and firm cotton mats and accordingly I started to add a latex foam sheet
in the middle of the futons. First 2 cm, later 6 cm and at the end I found myself making a 10 cm latex foam
mattress with some fibres on top.
In 1996 I made my first trip to Asia to investigate more in natural latex foam because the European bedding
industry at that time don’t care much about the difference between synthetic and natural sources. That trip
was my personal vocation! Back in Germany together with the ECO Institute in Cologne I founded the “Quality
Association for Environmentally-Agreeable Latex Mattresses .e.V. = (QuL e.V.).
Beginning 2000 I joined a company in Bremen (Dames-Willers GmbH) which was already engaged in latex
foam businesses such as import and export of pillows and mattress cores, machinery supply and other
During the next 13 years, amongst other, I was responsible for the budgeting, planning, export and erection of
3 latex foam production plants:
2003 Sri Lanka
After finishing the first project in Sri Lanka in 2003 (which was still based on steam vulcanization) I invented a
„process for vulcanizing and apparatus therefore” (EP 1 508 420 A3) based on high-frequency heating
and special designed moulds. This process revolutionized the DUNLOP process dramatically (read more at:
BACKGROUND and TECHNOLOGY). The factory in Indonesia was the first in the world which was equipped
with this new production process. A few years later we equipped a new factory in Guatemala with two
separate production lines, one for pillows and another one for mattress cores.
From 2013 to 2018 I was working as free and independent consultant, entrepreneur and inventor. In 2018 I
was hired to help to set-up another factory in Malaysia to produce mattresses and pillows.
We are continously working in new processes and technologies. Latest succes is a sample of TALALAY foam
